Talking & Driving
The advent of cellphones has led to a drastic rise in distracted driving accidents. Talking and driving is a dangerous recipe that can tragically affect the lives of others on the road. According to a study conducted by the University of Utah, using a cellphone — even a hands-free device — can impair one’s driving just as much as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.*
Unfortunately, all too often, drivers fail to appreciate the risk they are taking when they habitually pick up the cellphone while driving. They are putting not only their own lives at risk, but the lives of others as well.
Were you injured in a motor vehicle accident? Was the other driver — or the driver of the car you were riding in — talking on a cellphone at the time of the accident? If so, you are not alone. I am , a personal injury attorney in Georgetown, Texas, and I have handled many cases of others in your situation. My practice is dedicated to protecting the rights of injured Texans and fighting for the justice they deserve.
Following a serious accident, the medical bills, rehabilitation costs, lost wages and other out-of-pocket expenses can quickly pile up. You should not have to suffer the financial consequences of an accident caused by another driver’s irresponsibility in choosing to talk or text on the phone instead of focusing on driving. I can help you get the financial recovery you need to piece life back together again.
